and so, i went on -- >> montana. >> and so i went searching for replacement coverage for the employees that had been laid off, only to find out that cobra doesn't apply to me because i have less than 20 employees. and that conservatively affects 80% of all workers in montana. so, they were pretty much out on their own. and i was wondering if what we can do to eliminate discrimination against small employers, as an example, we're a lumberyard, we're out there lifting boards and packing stuff all day long. every one of my remaining seven employees are fit. so, why are we and i as an employer able to provide a lesser level of benefits to my employees and yet an employer with 30 employees who sit in cubicles on their butts instead of working them off gets a better rate? >> that was a pretty good question. so, for all of you who are all sitting on your -- what did you call them? no. as i said, small businesses is probably as vulnerable as anybody. and one of the things that max has been working very hard on -- and this just doesn't get advertised, but i want to make sure e
's in montana this morning where he held a town hall meeting yesterday. the crowd was pretty civil for the president. but he got tough, yet polite questions. >> the president has a town hall meeting in grand junction later this evening. a lot of health care related events going on. >> we have a map showing where they all are across the country. pete stark is holding three in california. he's going to be a busy guy. as you can see from the map, there's events in chicago and atlanta. >> the first lady, sasha and malia didn't stay home. they are traveling with the president this weekend. >> so is ed henry. he tells us the president is mixing business with pleasure in big sky montana. >> reporter: sure, montana is a nice place to visit this time of year. the president had more on his mind than fly fishing. he came for urgent business. buttering up the state's senior senator and chairman of the finance committee who could hold the fate of health care in his hands. >> first of all, the man working tirelessly to make sure americans get a fair deal when it comes to health care in america.
know, a lot of people talk about max bachus. max bachus pays attention to what people say in montana. he does. there's been single payors in his state. and this republican force is going to die. when grassley said the other day he pretty much admitted this was a farce, chairman baucus knows he has to get a bill out of this committee and if he only has democrats to work with, guess what the majority democrats on his committee favor a political option. if he's going to get a bill out of this committee with zero republican boats it's going to have to have a public option in the senate finance bill; otherwise, there isn't going to be a bill, right? and he knows there has to be a bill. so it matters what you say. it's one of the reasons i've been very careful not to criticize individual senators. i don't mind talking about their views because at the end, i think we're going to get almost every democratic senator. almost every one because there's not going to be any republicans. they're not going to be interested in forming the bill and, therefore, the democratic caucus is going to have a
. >>> president obama faced more skeptics of his health care plan in in montana yesterday and one of the toughest questions was about how the government will pay. what obama will do to cover for 46 million uninsured americans. as ed henry reports, the president admitted it won't be easy. >> reporter: sure, montana is a nice place to visit this time of year but the president had more on his mind than just fly fishing. he also came for urgent business. buttering up the state senior's senior and chairman of the finance committee max baucus who could hold the fate of health reform in his hands. >> first of all, the man who is working tirelessly to make sure that the american people get a fair deal when it comes to health care in america, please give max baucus a big round of applause. >> reporter: in private, top presidential advisers acknowledge the fight has reached a critical stage because the opposition has gained some steam. capitalizing on anger over federal bailouts and debt at many congressional town hall meetings. >> -- the government has these powers to take over health care? >> reporter: b
in a conservative suburb of montana. it's expected to draw angry protesters just like those who have disrupted town hall meetings held by members of congress. the president will focus on a provision of the healthcare plan that would prevent insurance companies from dropping or limit coverage for those who become seriously ill. >> he felt very satisfied with what happened in new hampshire. he was able to address concerns that people had. i think he was able to take on, as i said, the misconceptions that have been out there in the legislation. so i think, he feels like we have made progress. >> organizers say they expect a turn out of about 500 people. >>> stay tuned to fox 45 morning news for continuing coverage of president obama's town hall meeting. we will have the latest coming up in a live report from washington later this hour. >>> eunice kennedy shriver will be laid to rest today. an invitation only funeral mass is scheduled at a catholic church in massachusetts. vice president joe biden is expected to join the kennedy family and friends to bid a farewell. the sister of john ed kennedy and ed

-election at all. his polls are way down out in montana and this is a somewhat embattled figure within washington. this is someone that a lot of democrats just don't trust. a lot of republicans don't trust and -- >> why don't they trust him? why don't they trust him? is it because he doesn't -- i mean, does he go back on his word or is he just a guy who doesn't play sides? >> i think he's a guy -- i think probably more the latter. i think, you know, he was for the bush tax cuts in 2001. he had to deal with chuck grassley last year and then he sort of turned around and supported the democrats on a key medicare bill last summer. he does sort of play both sides of the fence which i guess is smart if you want to get re-elected every six years in montana but, again, he seemed shell-shocked by the whole situation now. i saw him in a town hall meeting. he was actually surrounded by youtubes as he called him, which i think he meant cameras. no, it's true. there are even people with youtubes in the audience and i was like, whoa. he said i think i meant cameras but, anyway, i put it in my story. it went vi

this cold front, 64 degrees in billings, montana. we will cool down a little bit at the end of the week. until then we will be dealing with the steamy, muggy air mass and the chance and potential for thunderstorms to fire up. right around 7:00, there's the future scan model, a shower of storms stemming from new jersey, pennsylvania, and maryland and virginia. just the potential is there throughout the daytime for today and then a better chance for actually widespread rainshowers will come tomorrow as the cold front does inch closer. around 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning on friday, look at the line of shower and storms ahead of the cold front in pennsylvania. another round could move in here by friday right around 2:00. once the cold front pushes through on late friday into early saturday, there's the air mass. high pressure system is going to bblebuild for sunday and mondayd nice and pleasant conditions. >>> let's take you to the tropics and talk about hurricane bill. it has weakened a little bit. it's category iii with massive winds at 127 miles an hour. but still look at the system. it's
't even consider single payor conservative senator from montana who leads the committee that is now dropping the public option, even max bachus was in favor of the public option as recently as last november when he published his big hundred-page health care proposal that called for, quote, a new public option, a new public plan option similar to medicare. so if max baucus was in favor of a public option and president obama was in favor of a public option, and a public option survived through three house committees and one senate committee that passed bills on health care reform so far, why is the public option dying now? it's dying because of a collapse of political ambition. the democrats are too scared of their own shadow to use the majority the american people elected them to in november to actually pass something they said they favored. senator baucus has decided to take decision making about health care reform out of the full committee on which democrats have a huge majority and instead he wants it to be decided by a mini committee that he made up that's three senators from eac
